Hoddeok is a Korean hawker's delight. Made with yeast dough and stuffed with sweet filling, almost the same as other bread with yeast that requires rising.
After stuffing is done, it is flatten and lightly fried in oil on heated cast iron pan. When it turned brown, flip over and flatten the dough using your spatula. Care should be taken when pressing the dough, otherwise it will burst out.
Normally it was stuffed with brown sugar and nuts but this time I had used peanut butter and jelly as its stuffing.
The contrasting flavor from the plain dough and the sweet filling makes this Hoddeok a great snack!
